The main reason for doing this, I think, is so that Amazon can bundle apps from various developers. By taking over the " price management " amazon can determine the combined price without upsetting the individual developers (they will be getting their minimum anyway). Amazon's datamining will then go on and determine the ideal software "bundle's", everybody will be buying at Amazon because they get free-apps with some bundles. They will rule the WORLD, my friends. The W.O.R.L.D.

Unfinished Windows 7 Hotspot Feature Exploited 234 234

An anonymous reader writes with this excerpt from Engadget: "It wasn't all that long ago that Microsoft was talking up the Virtual WiFi feature developed by Microsoft Research and set for inclusion in Windows 7, but something got lost along the road to release day, and the functionality never officially made it into the OS. As you might expect with anything as big and complicated as an operating system though, some of that code did make it into the final release, and there was apparently enough of it for the folks at Nomadio to exploit into a full fledged feature. That's now become Connectify, a free application from the company that effectively turns any Windows 7 computer into a virtual WiFi hotspot — letting you, for instance, wirelessly tether a number of devices to your laptop at location where only an Ethernet jack is available, or even tether a number of laptops together at a coffee shop that charges for WiFi."

On the DS i played tetris waaay to much. I would find myself in the office, talking about office-stuff and just thinking 'If this dude, that is sitting on this chair, takes his screen on his lap and sits parralel to this closet, he would make like 3 lines'. That is when I stoped playing. Scary. But real.

Hacking's just another word for nothing left to kludge.
